would keep the bush tax cuts in place. fewer than half knew that romney and not obama had promised to increase defense spending. only 23% were aware that payroll taxes had decreased during obama's term in office. only slightly more than half knew that paul ryan is the republican vice presidential nominee. the director of the annenberg center, kathleen hall jamieson, our master media decoder is back with us. welcome. >> thank you. >> so who's responsible for the widespread unawareness or ignorance that you report in your survey? is it the candidate, the media, or the voter? >> it's all three. and fortunately, we have the opportunity with presidential debates to do something that reliably increases knowledge. we've been studying presidential debates for a long time as a scholarly community. and to our surprise, we consistently find that those who watch debates, regardless of the level of knowledge they come in with, come out with more accurate knowledge as a general group. and they do this because those who haven't paid a great deal of attention have a lot to learn. those of us who'v

in the presidential race had surpassed $600 million: $318.5 million for team romney, $287.2 million for team obama. and get this: more than half of all that money for ads has been sent in just three swing states, florida, ohio and virginia. what's more, huge sums, not only for ads but for get-out-the-vote efforts like mailings and robocalls are going into house and senate races in the fight to control congress. altogether, three billion dollars in campaign cash have been raised so far, and a projected $6 billion by the election, less than seven weeks away. it's not just that we're being hit by swarms of ads thicker than locusts. what's truly frightening is that we don't know who's really paying for them. president barack obama: i'm pledging to cut the deficit -- >>> romney's worth $200 million. >>> the president's doing a mediocre job. >>> governor romney cares about big business. >>> real job growth cut the debt. >>> i had no healthcare. >>> -- to the highest corporate bidders -- >>> if you're a super pac, empowered by the supreme court's citizens united decision to take unlimited donations, you'

-- >> castigating the agreement president obama and the republicans had made to extend the bush tax cuts for the ultra-rich, lower their estate taxes, and jeopardize the future of the social security trust fund by diverting revenue away from it to other purposes. >> we have got to stand tall and draw a line in the sand and simply say, "enough is enough." >> around 7:00 that evening, bernie sanders finished, and what happened next was phenomenal. the senate server, overwhelmed, went down -- crashed. the switchboards were jammed. and like sparks from 100,000 watch fires lighting up the distant hills and hollows, his words flew across the country. that speech is now this book entitled, "the speech." i spoke with senator sanders earlier in the week. good to have you. >> great to be with you, bill. >> i watched the democratic convention, as perhaps you did. and i heard all the speeches about opportunity and solidarity. and i saw that vast array of faces, of every color, every age, every gender. and i thought, "there are still two democratic parties in this country, the party out across the co

. there's no love for romney among these people, but they are united in their loathing of barack obama. and that's where ralph reed comes in. >> four years ago, we heard a lot of talk about hope and change. people were fainting at campaign rallies. there were che guevera posters hanging in dorm rooms. there was one candidate who stood in front of greek columns and vowed to heal the planet and cause the oceans to recede. but you see our hope is in something this world doesn't fully understand. we hope for a kingdom yet to come. the hope of a new heaven and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness. a place where every tear will be wiped away. and every broken heart will be healed. and all the pain and brokenness and poverty and injustice of this world will be gone. >> but first there's the devil to chase. >> i believe that barack obama is a direct threat to the survival of the country i grew up in. >> dear friends, our religious liberty is at stake in this election, because obama is at war with all religion in any public place, any public square any public school. >> for the first ti
